A born and bred New Yorker, Ola began his college studies in chemistry at City College of New York, but realized as a student that he favored a more intimate setting working with people and graduated with a B.S. in psychology. His major has stood him in good stead. Following college, Ola trained as a missionary in New Hampshire with an organization where he eventually became a valued member of the staff.
After almost 7 years of working to provide health and lifestyle education in the community, Ola decided to pivot and pursue a career in financial planning, keeping in his sights the strong desire to help people and inspire them to action. While studying for his CFP, Ola returned to New York and is now part of the team at Bridgewater. When not at work, Ola enjoys being with his family, his group of friends called “The Living Room,” serving in his church, and playing basketball.
